President of Ballarat.
Located at the foothills of the towering Panamint Range, the settlement of Ballarat near Death Valley National Park in California is now virtually abandoned. This ghost town, named after the boomtown in Australia, was once a buzzing supply point for the mines in the area.
Today, Ballarat has only one full-time resident, its caretaker Rocky Novak.
A wonderful piece of Americana. I especially enjoyed the ‘…. If vacant.` touch.
